The condition led to a business deal.

NASCAR racer Dale Earnhardt Jr. is known to have kosmemophobia — an irrational fear of jewelry.

But when he married Amy Reimann on New Year’s Eve 2016, he had to find a way around the phobia in order to wear a wedding ring. NESN reports that Earnhardt recently discussed his fear on his “Dale Jr. Download” podcast.

Earnhardt can’t stand being around metal jewelry. He’s said in the past that he finds it “creepy.”

He has a wooden ring, but he doesn’t always wear it because it could easily break. For everyday wear he sticks with something more durable. NESN reports that he and his wife “he and his wife Amy have a deal with a company that makes silicone rings.”

Earnhardt says, “I wear Qalo rings, which are like a rubber composite sort of material, and they’re very comfortable.”

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
